Skype is the best way I know. A subscription costs US$12.95 a month for unlimited calls to anywhere in the world. I don't think a Nanchang (capital N) specific phone plan is really of any benefit to expats in the rest of China, and it sounds rather expensive.

Crimo if you have China mobile. Just dial 10086 follow instructions and ask for english speaking service, tell them that you phone regular to the US and they will give all the instructions you need for FREE. will ya? If you are to f*cking lazy then dial 17951+country code+mobile number. This will cost you 3rmb/min. Not ANY deposit required.
Their is not such a plan were you are talking about, it is that simple.

You can go to the China Mobile website too and do a search, but as you are too busy here with crap you will have not the time to do it.

It is rather easy to do so.  If you have a cell phone, and your provider is China Mobile for example, all you do is dial 1259300, then without a space left, 1 for USA and the area code and number you want to speak with. 
Wait until the call goes thru, and eventually you will hear a ring or a voice telliung you circuits are busy try later.  If rings eventually someone will answer, and then you talk.
And the best part, the cost is around 1 yuan per minut or so, I do it all the time, and it works for me.  No need for any plans, prepay deposits, International phone cards or anything.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
